Reuters: It is reported that the official Twitter account of the Chinese Embassy in the United States once tweeted that Uighur women affected by extreme ideas have been liberated and no longer become a fertility machine.
The tweet was found to be in violation of the Twitter company’s opposition to the “dehumanization” rule.
After that, the account of the Chinese Embassy in the United States was frozen by Twitter company. . How do you comment on this?
Hua Chunyu: We have noticed the restrictions taken by Twitter on the Twitter account of the Chinese Embassy in the United States.
We also note the public opinion’s attention to some of Twitter’s management rules.
We also have concerns in this regard.
Everyone has noticed that there are a large number of conspiracy theories and false information on American social media, which are deeply affected by the United States and seriously negatively affected.
China is also a big victim, and there is a lot of ugly false information against China on Xinjiang-related issues.
The Chinese Embassy in the United States has the responsibility and obligation to clarify the facts and explain the truth.
We are puzzled by the restrictions imposed on the accounts of Chinese Embassy in the United States on Twitter for this purpose, and hope that Twitter adheres to the principle of objectivity and impartiality and does not adopt double standards on this issue.
We should strengthen screening and identify what is true false information, what is rumor and lie, and what is the truth.
